anonymous 3 years ago can some one check this radical expression for me to make sure i got it right?

1. anonymous

i got $\frac{ 3a ^{3}}{ 2 }$

2. tyteen4a03

Yes, that is correct.

3. anonymous

@tyteen4a03 can it be shown as $\frac{ 3 }{2}a$ ?

4. tyteen4a03

@Spartan_Of_Ares No, where did the a^3 go?

5. anonymous

@tyteen4a03 sorry i meant $\frac{ 3 }{ 2} a ^{3}$

6. tyteen4a03

@Spartan_Of_Ares No, because the whole term 3a^3 was divided by 2, not just the 3.

7. anonymous

@tyteen4a03 4a^3 4a^2 $\frac{ 3 }{2 }a ^{3}$ and $\frac{ 3 }{2 }a ^{2}$ are the only choices

8. tyteen4a03

Oh sorry, went blind. 3/2 * a^3 is correct.
